Perched on a high bluff, mere steps from the beach, this timeless Santa Monica boutique hotel has undergone a $30 million redesign promising you a stylish haven to see and be seen. A lush courtyard with elevated pool and cabanas encourages mingling and sunning. The gourmet restaurant, The Dining Room, offers first class cuisine and hushed intimacy, and the posh rooftop bar summons the ambiance of a chic private club.

Hotel or nightclub ???

The Hotel itself is in a great location, has a good pool area and loads of potential. Unfortunately the hotel management seems to have distracted by the desire to turn the pool area into a 'hot' spot. The pool staff were rude/unhelpful, the service unbelievably slow (ie had to wait for an hour for a drink, asked for it 3 times too) and the food was very ordinary once you eventually got it. Management should look after their guests first, local 'celebrities' second. Extremely disappointed.

Entertainment tip: In Hotel

If you like a pool scene and music blaring around the hot tub well into the night, this is the spot for you.

Shangri La

Everything about the hotel was fantastic. It will be even better when the pool area and restaurant renovation is complete. Hotel staff are extremely congenial and most accomodating.

Unbeatable location for the price

It's a beautiful hotel with excellent service. We got a great rate because they are undergoing constuction on thier pool area and their restaurants weren't open. Both the pool and reastaurants looked like they were going to be really nice. You can't beat the views and location.
